The freshers approach the end of their first term. How well have they really settled in? Have they worked out the magic formula to balance a life of partying, studying, paying the bills and living with a group of students they have only just met?

Will they crack under the pressure or manage to perfect the balancing act? And how will their social media updates correlate with their real life experiences?
